Rose Park and surrounding neighborhoods have high numbers of immigrant and refugee households. Immigrant families are under tremendous stress to find work, pay bills, and feed their families. Many have limited schooling and understanding of the U.S. school system. Oftentimes, children are left to work through the complexities of the U.S. education on their own.

We offer a program that assists Parents and Students for families to learn how to navigate and partner with schools.
